last, Thursday night. His death was

only been ill about three hours.

Disba i.MENT proceedings were in
stituted against John C. Watson in
the district court of Otoe county last
Friday. The charges are unprofes
sional conduct in court cases, one of
which is the Tourtelot bankruptcy
case at Nebraska City and in this city.
The charges are signed by J. Sterling
Morton and eleven other prominent
citizens of Otoe county and, as Watson
has been a prominent lawyer for
number of years, the outcome will be
watched with interest.
Thk News has on its exchange

M. D. Polk is employed on the paper

Every patriotic American citizen
ought to write to his senators and rep

and all of them to do his utmost to
secure the passage cf the shipping bill
that has been favorably reported by
the house committee on merchant
marine and fisheries and the senate
committee on commerce. The passnge
of that bill, during the present session
of congress, would lay the broad

A story is current to the effect that
a New York newspaper offered Ad

once on the shores of the li-vl sea,
this occasion again inspired the
women of Isreal, and they presented
the faith of their mothers with a'l the
eloquence and earnestness born of con

and loyal fidelity to her faith throuyh

trying ci 1 cumstances that woman has
ever had to confront."
In this conyress Miss Sadie Ameri
can of Chicago said: "The Jewish
woman has shared the ideas and
thoughts of the man. Sno has aided
with Ijeart and hand in his work, the
assistance of her head has rarely been
asked. Her real work - has been con
fined to the home. There it is she has
made her influence felt. To the Jew,
motherhood was and is the highest,
noblest type of womanhood. In the
home tho Jewish woman reigned as
queen, to her were left the perform

ested in all that interests woman, and
is in perfect sympathy with the time."

Joseph Wunprecht, of Augsburg, in
Germany, was blind from birth, but
kept a second-hand book shop so suc
cessfully that he retired. His shop
often contained as many as 20,000 vol
umes, but so acute was his memory
that if he had once handled a book and
placed it on the shelf, he could always

him, and such was his knowledge of
books that he was able from this alone
to accurately price them.
